You can try this out if you want. Just copy everything to your stock bios. There are 3 different versions of the FTW+, with different firmware revisions. Don't flash directly unless your firmware is 84.04.36.00.73.

The 6 + 2 pins, and the 8 pins are exactly the same... The only difference in the 6 pin and the 6+2 / 8 pins, now, is the 2 extra ground wires. So, yes....if it's a 6+2, it'll support the spec 150.

I think this worked out nicely..

Max-59C @ 4.5GHz and 49C on the GPU Max 1.519GHz
Thanks Vellinious and Cannonkill

Just an update for anyone interested.

Despite the modified bios the voltage is still 1.2 at high temps (70s) and 1.212 at low temps. At this point it looks like the card is hardware limited.

Kinda, salty both the 970's I got (one is an RMA) have huge coil whine, and the fan isn't as quiet,
just one to know if at least the fan part isn't just me...
post #22716 of 26204
I asked this earlier but, does modding the bios void your warranty, or can you flash it back to stock and things will be fine. Also, can someone make my power limit higher. My power supply is 500w, my gtx 670 went up to 150% and things were fine so, i'm guessing anything up to 150% would be ok. Most people seem to use no more than 125-135%. That would be fine to i guess. Everything else (voltage, clock speed etc) i want untouched, i just want my power limit higher.

Thank You GM204.rom.zip 138k .zip file

Yours is the first ACX card that I've seen that's voltage limited. Still, with the higher power limits, did your overclocks improve?

Id look at trying to lower your temps before you start modding bios's becuase your liekly to see no gains due to the fact that the more voltage you add the more heat youll generate and the more heat you generate the less likely you are to get stability. what does your case look like? hows the airflow?

Under 60? Do you guys live in Minessota? Seriously, my card is usually around 70C, but it does go over 75 fairly often (especially on cutscenes for some reason). 60C is unrealistic.

EDIT:

I know anything above 70C is not optimal for Maxwell, but it can happen. In my case it's due to my Corsair 200R being fairly small and not that good at dissipating heat but sub 60C is just unrealistic and misleading.

This is why I cool with water

I edited, I understand you guys are hardcore, but the guy was responding to someone that brought his core to 1500mhz, it's really unrealistic to say it should stay under 60C at that clock speed. Only with water and a lot of BIOS tweaking you might get those kind of temps.

Offtopic but does anyone know how to show the voltage on OSD with Afterburner?
